I have made it through all the firsts of my first litter. I started weaning this weekend. I was going to wait until next week but they have been eating and drinking so much on thier own I decided it was time. Especially since mother rabbit made a hasty escape from them each and everytime I opened the door. Since they have started eating even the smallest has caught up in weight and size. So to lessen the stress of weaning on the kits I moved mother to a new cage across from them with three of the kits and left the other six in the orginal cage. Everyone is eating a drinking very well. I have fat monster kits they will be 5 weeks old in a few days. This has been an awesome experience. I look forward to learning more.
This has created some more work to my day but It is rewarding and keeps me off the sofa.
Rabbits do poop alot.
Bucks spray sometimes as you are walking by.
They are amazing and comical to watch.
So this is a positive experience in my quest to be a bit more self sufficient. I love my comforts. But this makes me appreciate them even more.
PS-If anyone wants rabbit poop for thier garden send me an email lets talk poop.
